August 2017 OMG

As I did not even come close to finishing my goal for July, I am going to continue that goal, which is to get the top completed for a baby quilt by the end of the month.  The fabrics are below and just SEW cute, I can not wait to work on them.  I have one sew day to go to this month, and hopefully I can find some time at home too.  I am out of town for a full week though, which takes away some wonderful weekends to sew.  I will try to accomplish even with that scheduled conflict.

Linking up to Elm Street Quilts and One Monthly Goal.  Good luck to everyone else trying to accomplish their goal, whether it be to finish a UFO or project, or just make progress on something.

Trip Back East

In the middle of July my husband and I went back to Ohio to visit my side of the family.  We had a grand time.  I love it back there.  It is so relaxing and I love the change of weather and of course the rain.  While back there we were able to hit two different craft shops.  The first stop was The Crafty Ewe in Broadview, OH.  I was able to find a few cross stitch patterns there.

The second shop was Miller's Dry Goods in Amish country in Middleburg, OH.  This shop was huge, two buildings with tons of fabric.  Here is the sign:

And my purchases.  I made purchases for Bonnie Hunter's Leader and Ender challenge, and future quilts for my grandparents in which I need scrappy scarlet red and grey.

I had a wonderful time, and next time we are back there I plan to hit new to me quilt shops that are around the area by my grandparent's house.
